Singing can be a joyful feeling in which you rewardingly express yourself. When the song you sing is one you've written this feeling can be both even more fulfilling, and initially even more nerve wracking. "Sing Your Own Song" is a short course offered by "Finding Your Voice" which offers a safe and supportive environment in which to develop songwriting skills, create a song, and perform it to supportive people. It is appropriate for complete singing/musical novices, experienced musicians, and anyone between those extremes. It can be taken as a course for personal development, or as a way to expand your songwriting into new directions and find new sources of songwriting inspiration. See http://www.raeleneb.net/findingyourvoice/?page_id=254 for the next course start date. The course consists of 6 x 2.5 hour lessons, and a final event designed by the class. There will be some enjoyable homework involved.
